Arriving at the Riddings with the temperature 20 degrees,
it promised to be a good day.
23 drowners turned up and after the usual maggotdrowner greetings and pleasanties we commenced the draw with no problems until i heard peg 81 with 33 pegs i was well shocked.
The draw done and Linda hard at work on the raffle we set up.
The fishing was hard for some but all caught.

THE WOODEN SPOON.
This was a hard fought battle with weights of,
2.2 and 1.12 and 1.10.
but the winner with 1.9 was JAZZMAN.

The winner of the trophy.
Glen Ribbons with 80.15. well done to Glen, who sat opposite me, at least i saw some some fish.

Hi Guys

I will take on the Midlands Individual next year but l will pick a time in the Summer Months when the fishing is good and a bit warmer ???????????,

That's if there is no objection from others.

But where will we go your thoughts please.

Bucko.

Portland sounds ok to me - if im free - but its not very central for a midlands match, great venue though.

The problem with warmer weather is most people are on matches which will reduce the numbers.
Thats why i picked october as most leagues have finished.

Make it somewhere down south midlands then so chefster can go for a practice. Ooops, sorry, I meant "recce" [:D][:D]
